Personal injury compensation payments


If you receive a personal injury compensation payment, you may not have to pay tax on it.

Payments you are exempt from tax on include:

If a workplace accident causes your death, compensation of up to €200,000 may be payable from your former employer. This payment is exempt from tax.

Occasionally a personal injury can cause significant mental or physical damage. Where this occurs, you may not have to pay tax on income you receive from investing your compensation.
